Arizona bill targets transgendered for using ‘wrong’ bathroom

The Arizona House of Representatives plans to review next week a bill that would make it a crime for transgendered people who are found to use the “wrong” bathroom.

Many see it as a rebuke against the City Council of Phoenix’s passage of a protection law that would broadly outlaw discrimination against the transgendered.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Michael Silverman, director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, to discuss the proposed law.
